With so many exhibitors, speakers and sessions to experience, SHRM can quickly become overwhelming – but it doesn’t have to be if you come prepared. Make the most of your time at SHRM 2019 in Las Vegas with these top tips!

Take advantage of every opportunity
Although it’s easier said than done, check off your work to-do list before you head to SHRM, so you can be in the moment and seize every opportunity that arises. Attend sessions that will expand your perspective. Set up meetings with professionals you’ve been waiting to speak to. Discover new solutions at the enormous Exposition Hall. You’ll be surprised at the incredible opportunities available to you at SHRM.
Get inspired by the speakers
Enhance your learning experience at SHRM by choosing a great mix of speakers with stories and viewpoints that not only align with yours, but also ones that challenge your current mindset. In doing so, their messages will allow you to grow, find solutions to meet the needs of your organization and transform your overall impact in your workplace and community.

Make time for one of the most valuable parts of SHRM – the people
Planning your schedule is always good, but be sure to let those serendipitous moments happen. This is your time to engage with industry professionals who get it – talk with them and ask questions. If you don’t allow free time to reach out to new people, there will be lots of missed opportunities. Make it happen!

Refresh and recharge in Sin City style
It can’t be all work and no play! Las Vegas is the perfect playground to enjoy some leisure time between sessions or after a full day of SHRM. From dazzling shows on the Strip to breathtaking tours outside of Vegas, TicketsatWork.com lets you experience Sin City without breaking the bank. Save on Las Vegas tickets!

Be part of the conversation on social media
One of the best things to do before and after SHRM is to join the conversation on all social media platforms. Connect with attendees.  See what topics are trending and then be part of the discussion. You can also discover fun nighttime events. Social media works wonders. Follow us @TicketsatWork and #SHRM19 to stay up to date. We look forward to hearing from you!

6 Exciting Things You Can’t Miss on ‘Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure’

Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure

Summer fun is heating up in Orlando! The all-new thrill ride Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is now open at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

The awesome addition to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter features twists and turns, and speedy thrills as visitors fly deep into the wilds of the Forbidden Forest, beyond the grounds of Hogwarts castle.

To celebrate the grand opening, here are six exciting things you can’t miss on the new attraction:

Fly into the Forbidden Forest
And flying you will go because this ride zooms! The longest roller coaster in Florida, measuring nearly a mile in length, hits speeds up to 50 mph. It’s also only the second coaster in the nation to feature a vertical drop – a 17-foot free fall.

Thrills
In between the magical creatures and flying motorbikes, the new ride features a record-setting seven launches. Riders are catapulted 65 feet in the air at more than a 70 degree angle and immediately dropped backwards in motion.

Adventure
As you twist past towering trees, magical creatures and wondrous surprises surround you. With Hagrid as your guide, you fly far into the dark forest. Hurl past impossible obstacles and dodge fierce beasts on a freewheeling coaster flight that will bring you close to some of the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures.

Motorbike
Guests may choose to sit on Hagrid’s motorcycle, or in the adjacent sidecar, which moves at speeds of up to 50mph. You’ll be ready for a second trip around because the experience is different depending on where you sit. Fans of J.K. Rowling’s popular book and film series will know that the motorbike originally belonged to Harry’s godfather, Sirius Black.

Story Coaster
The fun starts even before you jump on a motorbike with Hagrid. The Motorbike Adventure is known as a ‘story coaster,’ where the show starts when you step into line. You’ll see a pre-show that begins at the edge of the forest, featuring characters Arthur Weasley, Hagrid, and Hagrid’s dog. Then you hop on the motorbike for more adventure.

App
As you can imagine, the ride is already a massive hit and visitors are lining up for the adventure. To better ensure your place in line try Universal’s Virtual Line system on their official App. You select a time and a number of riders. While waiting for that time, you can explore the park and other attractions.
